Newton All-Stars place third in world series; win sportsmanship award

Down 5-3 at the top of the seventh inning, Newton 14U All-Stars climbed back into the game like Mufasa wasn't able to, tying the game at 5-5 heading into the bottom of the seventh. It was the semifinals with a chance to go on to compete against North Carolina in the championship game and Louisiana was giving Newton all they had. An error moved a runner to second and Louisiana would knock the tying run in to give them the game and a shot at the title.

Water up

Fall football practices are in full swing but Fall hasn't arrived just yet. July and August are the hottest months of the year for the players in Rockdale and Newton County so coaches and trainers work together to monitor hydration in order to protect players from heat-related issues such as heat stroke.

Michigan offers Kurt Taylor Jr.

Kurt Taylor Jr. has slowly been gaining attention from colleges across the nation. He's been on multiple unofficial visits and met coaches from UGA to Rutgers, but it means nothing if they don't make the three-star running back an offer. Michigan was added to the list of schools that have offered Newton's star running back, and they're easily the biggest and best offer thus far. Offers will pour in this season if Taylor Jr. has the kind of season many people believe he can have.

Eyeing the crown

A 13-17 (8-2 Region 2-AAAAAA) record last year yielded a huge blowout loss to county/region rival Alcovy in the region championship and a first round exit in the playoffs. The Lady Rams were a team lacking experience last year, but in 2015 they have an abundance of it.

Have you ever thought?

What of the past do we keep? Why is it important for us to remember what events happened before our time? We are much like the turtle found on top of the fence post; we know one thing for sure: that turtle didn't get there by himself. Yesterday is the one day we cannot change. Whatever our history is, it is our history. And by remembering our past we learn valuable lessons as well as appreciation for those who sacrificed for us.

Legal and Academic equality nonsense

A particular act or policy might not have a discriminatory intent, but that doesn't let you off the hook. If it has a disproportionately negative impact on so-called protected classes, it is said to have a disparate impact and risks being prohibited by law. The uninformed assumption made by judges, lawyers and academics is that but for the fact of racial and sex discrimination, we all would be distributed across occupations, educational backgrounds and other socio-economic characteristics according to our percentages in the population. Such a vision is absolute nonsense. There is no evidence, anywhere, at any time, that ...
